Event description

Description

The Bridge offers free training on how to administer Naloxone as a response to the provincial overdose crisis and public health emergency. The training takes approximately one hour and our award-winning nursing staff will teach you:

  • How to recognize an opioid overdose
  • How to administer Naloxone in an overdose situation
  • Hands-on training to properly perform the injection
  • All participants will leave with a Naloxone kit and the knowledge on how to use them properly

Naloxone is a form of first aid in situations involving an opioid overdose. We strongly encourage all members of our community to be ready to deliver this life-saving medication. Evidence shows members of the public can effectively respond to opioid overdoses, as waiting for Emergency Medical Services can have fatal consequences.
